Upwards and Onwards

As I'm sure (or at least I hope I'm sure) you all know by now, the hoax is over, the FGR group remains, and ain't no-one goin' nowhere except them fuggin' fools what wanna go.

Yes, of course FGR is sticking around, and for a damn long time I hope.

We did make a couple of minor tweaks (see new FAQ and new Rules on the FGR site) to make the group run a little smoother. We will also be a lot more actively engaged in policing deadwood out of the group. This is not to say that nonplayers are not welcome - of course they are - but we will be ejecting those who spend too much time whining about how they don't like FGR. If you don't like it, do what I do what Mariah "Shatter Glass" Carey comes on the radio - switch the damn channel.

Also, it should be pointed out that the FGR for charity efforts are NOT fake. We really do want to get the FGR community more involved in having a positive influence in the cities and countries where we all live. Not only is this a good way to give back a little bit, and hopefully refill the karma bank but it is also a great way to get out and meet other fuggers.

So welcome to the New Year, and welcome to the New FGR.

Hope your year is happy, healthy and prosperous.

Peace, love and fugs to all!

Why we're ending FGR...

Most of you have heard by now that we'll be bringing the Flickr Version of FGR to an end.  This new blog will take the place of that madness.  Mark and I have had enough of the bullshit over there.  Too many people think that FGR is about them.  The bottom line is, it's about us.  Just us.  And maybe Bitca.  And also maybe Kat.  But that's it.  That's all we need.  Except maybe Flooz.
And Dare.

So we're ending it over there - and bringing it over here. 

We're also working on the FGRStore  (  It is not up yet, but we have a team of highly skilled web designers and graphic artists working hour after hour to get you the products you need.  We have a big surprise product coming out that will be very limitied in quantity - and sure to sell out in a day.  We have other ideas such as T-shirts and mugs and buttons which will all be available soon.

The important thing about the store is that every penny - every single penny - will be divided between our favorite charities.  

Mark's Charity of Choice is MS. 
My Charity of Choice is ALS (Lou Gehrig's Disease). 
These diseases have affected our loved ones and are extremely important to us.

In addition, we will be donating money from the sale of FGRStuff to Breast Cancer Research, since FGR has always taken a huge interest in breasts.

So hang in there folks - and look for the store to open in the next week or so.
Help us to help FGR make a difference.

With love of boobies, 
Auntie Clem.

The Changing Face of FGR

So, why a blog? Why now? What's the point?

Well my fine fellow fuggers (and fuggers to be if you've found this site and haven't yet joined the chaos), the reasons really fall into three categories...

the first is simple housekeeping - we are working to get the original Flickr group cleaned up and more tightly focused on the challenge groups. Not to diminish the fun and shenanigans, but several times in the last couple of weeks there have been random non-FGR related posts appearing in the group which have been since unceremoniously scooped from the pool like the floating turds they are. As these topics appear in future, they will be removed to this blog...

the second reason is more egotistical in nature... as stated elsewhere on this page, we are hoping to expand fugging infection elsewhere. The reality is, while we got our start as a group of fools needing photographic inspiration, our connections and impact have actually gone beyond the bounds of flickr-dom. Which actually leads to the third reason...

we often have a good time taking the piss out of each other and harassing random fools who stumble into our paths... but we also are a group of some of the most caring compassionate folks I know. Through this site we are hoping to not only provide an opportunity for greater interaction between members, but also make our impact felt in other ways. One of the earliest traditions of the group has been our annual participation in the Boobie-Thon... taking that concept to the next step, we are hoping to encourage greater philanthropic pariticaption from the fugging community. Be it fundraising activitites, fugger meetups for charitable work, or other ideas, lets get out and be known not only as the rudest assholes on flickr, but also as some of the most giving people in the world of social networking...

so there you have it - three good reasons for a Fuggin' Blog... enjoy!

For the children,
Uncle Trial

A not-so-gentle reminder

carried over from a previous posting in the FGR group

Folks, I hate that I feel obliged to say this, but here it goes. Consider this an open letter to the wingers whiners and other miscellaneous fuckwits who don't have anything better to do than cry about how they got their feelings hurt in FGR.

This group is not about you.

Don't get me wrong, we asshats are glad you are here and glad you are having a good time, and really love the inspired genius you all share with the world through this digital forum. But if you for one minute think that this group is anything more than a random assortment of idiots making fun of each other, inciting general civil disobedience, and generally amusing ourselves then you are clearly fucked in the head.

This group is not about you.

Check your ego at the door. Realize that I don't care who you are, and neither does anyone else in here. Prince of Wales? Who gives a fuck. Victim of years of anxiety about your hook nose? Tough shit. Sufferer of anal warts? Your goddam business.

Don't bring your baggage 'round here, cuz we ain't carrying it.

This group is not about you.

It's about us. And when you fuck with us - ANY of us- by taking this too seriously and assuming that any insult, joke, or vulgar haiku is an assault on you personally, don't be surprised when you are rejected swiftly and severely for being an egotisitcal shitbird.

Grow the fuck up and either play along or get fucking lost.
